Well, X was a very though one. I was not going to do X until my mom suggested I look at my ABC books I had as a child.
While Little Golden books may not be the greatest literature I had a lot as a child and they were some of my favorite books. The red Word book in the back and the Little Golden Picture Dictionary were my favorite. I enjoyed looking at the books and the pictures.
One of my childhood favorites, I enjoyed going looking at the pages of the Picture dictionary and naming all the pictures. Guess I’ve always been a bit of a nerd.
I’m back after taking a break for the Christmas Holiday last week. Currently, my husband and I live in Florida but are originally from Texas. I thought it would be fun to show the part of the world where I lived for many years. Today’s post features a quick tour of my Alma Mater, Hardin-Simmons. Hardin-Simmons University is located in Abilene, Texas. So, sit back and enjoy a visit to the 40 Acres.
Look for more from the Forty Acres in the following weeks. Hope you enjoyed your trip to west Texas.
Found this one thanks to a suggestion from a reader. The song is Joy by Apollo 100. It is their take on Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.
I had never heard of Apollo 100 but I liked the song. According to Wikipedia they were a short-lived instrumental group from Britian founded by arranger Tom Parker. Joy was their first single and has been featured in several movies.
Well, once again the Big Guy is a gainfully employed educator after spending the past few years as a grad student. For a year or so we have been a one car family with the Big Guy’s new job it is necessary to have a second car. Hopefully, this one will last as long as our 1991 Legacy.
Today is our our tenth anniversary and I am continuing the theme from my Tuesday and Wednesday posts. We were married in the same country church were my mom grew up and my grandparents were married.
This picture was taken in the summer so the it looked quite different in December. That part of Texas doesn’t really get much snow instead it often rains in the winter. It was very cold and rainy that day. The roads dirt roads were a mess. Even though it was cold we had to have the windows open before the service. It seems that sometime between church on Sunday and our rehearsal on Friday evening a skunk had crawled under the pulpit area. Fortunately, by Saturday afternoon most of the smell was gone.
